IT’S thought that almost 70% of adults with autism, regardless of their qualifications will not be in work, so today we discuss autism in the workplace and share some great examples of what’s possible.

Kieran Rose talks about his experiences of work and how employers can do more to support autistic adults.

Michael Crewe, aged 24 from Sunderland talks to us about the need for more employers to understand more about the condition. 

We launched an employment service in September 2016 called Employment Futures that exists to help remove barriers to meaningful employment for adults with autism and other disabilities. This service has been designed to support both the individual and the employer. Click here to find out more about the programme and how we can support you.
